Virtual Nostalgia : Ninja Gaiden

Team Ninja solidified themselves as an iconoclaustic, singular minded developer back in the early-mid 2000’s (during the sixth generation of consoles). They made the games that they wanted to make, how they wanted to make it and whichever console they wanted on. While a lot of developers would not imagine their games to not be on the PlayStation 2 those days (due to the console’s formidable install base), Team Ninja chose a different path. They openly declared that console to be an inferior piece of hardware, and under the formidable leadership of their enigmatic, charismatic and famously headstrong leader Tomonobu Itagaki – committed themselves 100% to making games under the original Xbox (Though they did port the Dreamcast Dead or Alive to the PS2, with stellar results)

Really miss the series, hopefully it comes back soon, but with both DOA6 comming soon, and Ni-Oh 2 announced i know if it ever does it's likely a long ways off
